High-reliability interconnect company Harwin has introduced a range of connectors that are IP67-rated and compatible with other Mil-DTL-5015 devices.
The C90 connectors feature re-styled rear flanges and end-bells to deliver a more streamlined profile.
Harwin's C90 connectors are available from stock in 10SL, 12S and 14S sizes and with end caps and rubber bushing attachments to suit the entire product family. Termination options include cable, straight plug or panel mount style.
End caps are available with inner or exterior thread, so it is possible either to screw the cap into or onto the connector. Rubber bushings deliver IP 67 sealing, protecting the connector from water dust and chemical ingress. End caps are manufactured from an aluminum alloy and are fully ROHS-compliant and competitively priced. To ensure end caps are not mislaid, they are attached to the connector body via a sturdy aluminum chrome chain.
Applications include mass transit, robotics, machine tools, welding equipment, extension leads, power cords and industrial and agricultural vehicles, plus COTS applications where Mil qualification is not mandatory.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
